Kristen Bell is craving some alone time.

With Mother's Day is right around the corner, the actress said she's looking forward to spending the holiday away from husband Dax Shepard and their two kids.

"I want to go somewhere where none of my family is," she told E! News on the red carpet at the Funny Girl premiere in New York City on April 24, adding that she already sees her daughters Lincoln 9, and Delta, 7, "all the time."

"My husband says there's such a double standard where dads go golf all day and go to dinner and moms are supposed to be served by the 3-year old all day and like watercolor with them," she continued. "No, I do a dads style Mother's Day."

The 41-year-old added, "Leave me alone, I'm out.'

It's no surprise Kristen may need a day to herself. Back in February, The Good Place alum admitted on the Armchair Expert podcast that she and Dax—who tied the knot in October 2013—still allow their daughters to sleep in their bedroom.

"Parenting is a lot like sports—you're either winning or losing every minute of the day," Kristen quipped during an October 2021 episode of her digital series Momsplaining With Kristen Bell"Mostly losing, but that's what makes the winning so sweet, and fleeting."

She continued, "Being a parent is just weird, you know? And it helps to know you're not alone. I suggest talking to someone—even if no one is there."

It's also not always kisses and hugs. During an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Kristen revealed that her girls often leave her some serious notes

"Sometimes it'll be an 'I love you,'' she said of her youngest daughter in September 2021. "But most times, it's about what stuff is hers and what not to touch," 

She then shared one intense, but hilarious note from Delta.

"Don't disturb, Delta is starving to death," it read. "Only Mom can come in."
